Radiesse® Wrinkle Filler
By Houston Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Mark A. Schusterman, MD, FACS and Nurse Practitioner Melanie Frye, MS, FNP-C
As we age, skin loses its elasticity, resulting in dryness, wrinkles, and lack of fullness especially around the mouth, eyes, and neck. This is because collagen, a naturally-occurring protein present in all fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and skin, breaks down over time. The more collagen your skin loses, the less volume it has, and therefore the less strength and flexibility. Once that volume is lost, your skin loses its ability to “bounce back” after being creased by natural facial expressions, which leads to the wrinkles and facial lines that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.
Welcome Back Your Own Natural Collagen
Fortunately, there is a solution: RADIESSE® wrinkle filler. This innovative and unique formulation naturally stimulates your own collagen production, thereby increasing your skin’s youthful volume. When injected into wrinkles, RADIESSE® wrinkle filler promotes collagenesis, which can last up to a year or more in most patients. The results are natural, long-lasting, and completely satisfying. Most beauty professionals agree RADIESSE® wrinkle filler is the best choice for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
The RADIESSE wrinkle filler difference:
- Stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production
- Instantly corrects wrinkles
- Results that may last a year or more in many patients
- Now FDA approved to enhance patient comfort with lidocaine mixing
A single injection can renew your skin’s youthful glow. Trust RADIESSE® wrinkle filler to help significantly improve the sight of wrinkles naturally and effectively. The procedure is fast, comfortable, and convenient, with results that immediately affect your skin’s youthful appearance.
What Is The Radiesse Treatment Procedure?
In your initial consultation, your Bella Rosa provider will discuss your desired results and examine your problem area to determine if Radiesse will work best for your needs. Fortunately, Radiesse is an all-natural substance already present in the body, so there is no chance of allergic reaction. Anesthesia is not required, though a topical analgesic may be used to numb the injection site to lessen potential discomfort. It is important that you discuss any medications you may currently be taking in your initial consultation to determine if special instructions will be needed.
The procedure itself if fast and simple. Using a microneedle, Radiesse is injected into the dermis in the desired areas, which takes about fifteen minutes. The gel reduces wrinkles by plumping the skin and increasing its natural moisture.
What Is The Recovery Time for Radiesse?
Radiesse is injected using a precise microneedle, which means the injection sites experience minimal irritation. The discomfort is negligible, which means you can return to your regular routine with no interruptions. As with any injections, bruising and swelling is a possible side effect that can occur with Radiesse injections. Most clients who have bruising and swelling report resolution of these symptoms within one week. Ice packs can help reduce redness and swelling. Makeup can be worn during that time to minimize the appearance of the side effects. You’ll get the results you are looking for with minimal to no down-time.
